Tbi Social 1'otltlon of Actor.
The time wna in France when the ao
tor had no social position, and certainly
no spiritual one. Special diipensatioa
was necessary when theCatholio church
Uowed a mas4 to be aid for the repose
of au actor a soul. In TbeChautauquan
Professor- Warren, describing the Mo
Here periwl, writes:
The social position o nctnn in Mo
Here's time wa a low one Not from
any prejudice against the stage evi
dently, since dramatists like Corneille
and Scarrou were ou the same footing
t the Hotel de Rambouillet and the
other salous of Pari as poets and essay
ists and were elected to the French
Academy as readily ludeed. it would
seem as though the composition of plays
was the shortest road to distinction in
the Paris of Moliere, as it is today. Cut
with tlit- actors it was another question.
Their wandering, unsettled modes of
life had evidently told against them.
They were not admitted to society
whether their conduct was good or bad.
They were not even considered in the
light of literary persons. Moliere met
his friends, lioileau. La Fontaine, Fu
retiere, at public cafes As a writer of
comedy he was cither not taken serious
ly or had incurred too much hostility on
the part of influential sets, the clergy
through "Tartuffe," tho salons through
"Les Femmes Savautes. As an actor
be was conside red an outcast with his
class, and when, on his deathbed, he
a6ked for spiritual consolation his ap
peal fell on deaf ears till it was too late.
So that it was with the greatest difficul
ty that his widow procured a bit of con
secrated ground in which to lay the re
mains of the unshrived comedian.
Newspaper rrofita In London.
There was a trial befon Mr. Justice
Cave recently which, if i .-rrectly re
ported, shows what is the profit of the
shareholders of The Times. Mr. Adams
bought one-fourteenth of two-thirds of
one-ninth of two-sixteenths (or 1-1,512)
of The Times from Mr. Brodie for 353
on the assurance that this minute share
was worth about 25 per annum. Ac
cording to him, after he had purchased
the share, he found it only to be worth
17 a year. On this ho asked for dam
ages. The jury assessed the damages at
05. Assuming this share to be worth
18 per annum (which seems about the
average value), it is clear that the net
dividend ou all shares is 27,216. Mr.
Adams, believing it to be worth 353,
paid for it 14.1 years' purchase. Tho
jury valued it at 288. which, taking
the annual return at 18, would be 10
years' purchase, making The Times
worth 435,450. This, however, does
not quite correctly, I believe, represent
the value, for Mr. Walter, as printer,
derives a large profit on an old contract.
This contract, in point of fact, represents
what may be called preference shares,
while those of the shareholders may be
termed ordinary shares, the value of The
Times being tho sum total of both.

The wap j accepted as emblematical
of irritability and petty malignity, but:
even this much abused insect plays a
beneficial part in the work of nature.
A number of wasps were seen by R. M.
Barriugton of Bray, Ireland, buzzing
about his cows. Closer inspection re
vealed that they were all busy catching
flies. One white cow drew more wasps
than any of the others because the mo
ment a fly alighted it was seen at once
against the skin. When a wasp catches
a fly, it immediately bites off both
wings, sometimes a leg or two and 00
casionally the head. Mr. Barrington
saw some of the wasps, when laden with
one fly, catch another without letting
go the first and then fly away with both.
There was a constant stream of wasps
carrying away flies, probably to feed the
larva) in their nests, and returning again
to the cows to catch more. In about 20
minutes Mr. Barrington estimated that
between 800 and 400 flies were caught
on two cows lying close to him. San
Font II Reptile Tracks.
The greatest region in the world for
fossil tracks of the reptiles which lived
in the early days of the world is that In
the vicinity of Portland, Conn. Some of
those old time monsters walked as bi
peds on feet that made tracks 16 to 20
inches long. These tracks are almost as
broad as they are long, and the stride
shows that the "reptile" must have been
fully 12 feet in height. Formerly these
wonderful "fosil tracks of the Connec
ticut valley" were said to be tracks of
ancient birds, but of lata the geologists
have taken a difTereut view, declaring
them to be marks left by reptiles. St

A new plan has boon proposed in the
legislature, to increase the revenue
from the sale of beer in a way that
will tend to lessen taxation generally
in every city aud township in the state.
It is to place a stamp tax of fifty cents
on every barrel of beer brewed In Mich
igan or brought here from other
states. In 18 there was brewed In
Detroit 404,235 barrels on which the
federal government collects 92i cents
per barrel, or a total of $373,910.43.
A ls)ut 2:"0, 000 barrels were brewed In
the rest of the Detroit revenue district,
while tho amount reported for the
western district brought the total
government revenue from the 6tate up
to approximately 5800,000. A fifty
cent state tax would yield an annual
income of close to half a million dollars.
Ry turning money Into the primary
school fund, every school district
would come in for a share of It.
Ex-Queen Lll, of Hawaii, who is now
in Washington, is very discreet in her
utterances as to her object in visiting
the United States at this time, but one
of her hangers-on has let the cat out of
the bag, by stating that she thought
President Cleveland ought, before re
tiring from ollice, to replace her upon
the throne. She has been badly ad
vised if she thinks any such thing as
that can be accomplished. Although
Mr. Cleveland was at one time very
anxious to restore the deposed queen
to authority, there is reason to believe
that he has long since realized the
mistake he made in his policy toward
Hawaii, and that he would not now
carry it out if he could. And every
body, Including the ex-queen, ought to
know that he could not if he wanted to.
While our revival meetings are in

who lets his horse stand out all day in

who growls like a wild beast when his

woman who whispers about that some
other woman is not what she ought to
be; the man who walks the streets
with his hands in his pockets while his
wife carries the baby, and the man
who keeps a dog and says he can't af
